What is kernel version 2.2.16-22smp??

Post by Andy » Sun, 25 Mar 2001 13:49:10



I just loaded rh7.0.  I am trying to get my netgear fa311 card working.
I copied the fa311.o into /lib/modules/2.2.16-22/net.  Then I wanted to
see if it would load ok so I did a:    insmod -n fa311.o and I got the
following error

"fa311.o was compiled for kernel version 2.2.16-22
while this kernel is version 2.2.16-22smp"

What is 2.2.16-22smp? Which kernel should am I actually running or
should I be running? How can I fix this?

Thanks

SMP means something like symetrical processor
It just means a kernel for dual (or more ) CPU's

If your board has one only processor then you have the wrong
kernel

smp means it handles multi-processors

u should be able to recompile (after removing the SMP feature of the
kernel) and then insmod the driver again

read the README file in /usr/src/linux/ for info on recompiling your kernel
